Throwback celebrity photos are always great. It’s a shame that most people save them for #ThrowbackThursdays or for cute-but-probably-embarrassing birthday shout-outs, like in this case. Kim Kardashian posted an old photo on Instagram to celebrate Paris Hilton‘s birthday. Yup, they are still friends, or at least good enough friends to still be communicating on social media.
The picture was taken way back in 2006. Kim and Paris are dressed in their best tie-up halter tops, and they’re looking very fresh-faced for two people who are probably partying late into the night in Ibiza. Paris and Kim don’t look drastically different than they do now. Yes, there is more contouring and more Balmain outfits now, and Kim has had an eyebrow makeover, but things could be very different. The photo is from almost ten years ago, and it was taken way before there were fifty different Keeping Up With The Kardashians spin-offs. This was a time when Kim was primarily known as being a BFF to Paris Hilton. Of course Kim didn’t mention that part in the message. She simply captioned the photo:
“Found this pic while unpacking! It’s from 2006 in Ibiza. Happy belated birthday @ParisHilton”
Awww. In life, some things change, and some things stay the same. It looks like Paris and Kim’s friendship has survived through the years…at least as far as social media is concerned, and that is probably the most important thing to both of them. Friends forever.
